Ms PH Earth San Marcelino: Janine Asanion
MANILA, Philippines - In line with the Miss Philippines Earth 2013 pageant's water conservation theme, this 24-year-old registered nurse says, "Look after reserves of water by making sure you turn off the faucet after use and by repairing leaks and drips. Purchase water-efficient appliances. Take showers instead of baths. Gather rainwater for garden use and use your lawn sprinkler less often or not at all."
Describe your childhood/growing-up years (8-13 years old):
I always had a good time with friends. I had a few close friends and we had a lot of great memories that we will never forget.
Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment is when I had my oath-taking ceremony and finally got my license as a nurse.
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
Restore the beauty of the environment through waste management. Various NGOs have been supporting this advocacy. Laws have been created, implemented as well. I wonder why "Problema sa Basura" remains a big problem to us Filipinos.
